New Fish!

And Lots of them :o  Well not yet..but soon...

My pond fish spawned! I bought a piece of papyrus root and a leaf inside. The rest of the eggs are staying outside...if anyone hatches and survives out there they get a free pass :rofl

I don't know who the parents are, but I suspect my big Shubunkin Splasher is the father, and my big red and white Comet, Picasso is the mother. I've seen Splasher chasing Picasso quite frequently.

Here are the eggs the day I found them:

Maybe I will get some babies next summer. It's almost winter here now. Everytime mine spawn, they just eat everything. There were no plants last year so all the eggs fell to the bottom and were quickly eaten or lost amongst the green crap down there.

This is just to cool. Justine took a look at your fry then went over to her goldfish and looked at them. Realizing how big her's have become :lol She just love fish and the fry photos are just great for her to see where they come from. 

:thumbs: Great job keep it up :)

These are great pics! It's nice to see them hatching. With those two as parents they are sure to be beautiful fish. :)

I'll have more pics tonight! There are SO MANY now.

 

My plan is once they get to 1-2 weeks old, only keep a few to raise inside and either set up my small shallow pond for the others, or use some underbed storage tubs as mini ponds for them
